Bus Pass Procedures

  • Parents can designate up to two “permanent” AM pick up and two PM drop off locations. These should be established for the entire school year. This will help accommodate families where parents reside in separate households and working families with day care providers or sitters.
  • "Daily" bus passes, except for emergencies (to be approved by the building principal), will be discontinued. This still allows for multiple bus pick up and drop off locations, but on an annually established basis only-not on a weekly or monthly basis. The elimination of daily bus passes will help eliminate student confusion regarding which bus they need to be on and will help ensure students are safely delivered to the correct location. It will also help with the efficiency of the bus runs as they will remain consistent. This is especially important in the case of substitute bus drivers.
  • Bus numbers will be changed to bus letter for Primary School students. There had been some confusion regarding route numbers and bus numbers. Instead of having children focus on numbers, each bus will have a bus letter, “A, B, C, etc,” which will be prominently displayed near the door. This will also allow the buses to line up at the school in alphabetical order and will make it easier for students and staff to quickly and more simply identify a student's bus.

We realize that even "permanent" locations may change over the course of the year, such as when a childcare arrangement changes or a parent changes jobs. In such cases we ask that parents establish the new "permanent" bus pass at least a week in advance, in writing. Verbal requests for such changes will not be accepted.

If you have questions about the latest transportation changes or if you want to review your particular situation, please do not hesitate to contact your school office.


Special Notes from the Transportation Department

Please have your child waiting at the bus stop five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled bus pick-up time.

For the first several days of the school year, you may experience delays.  Certain bus routes may need to be adjusted during the first several weeks of the school year, and your patience is most appreciated.  Please allow time for schedules to become more consistent.

The Transportation Department establishes regular morning and afternoon bus stops for eligible areas.  Students should be picked up and dropped off at these stops. An increase in the number of stops increases the chance of a hazardous situation and decreases the efficiency of the bus route.

If we can assist you in any way during the school year, please do not hesitate to contact the Transportation Department at 518-758-7575.
